Those that follow me on Instagram (thanks to the five of you!) know that I have been on a Cuban kick recently. I thought for this review I would go back to my roots and re-experience one of the first cigars I ever smoked in a brick and mortar, the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story.
This cigar is well constructed and has a perfect draw with a sweet tobacco pre-light flavor. I love the perfecto shape and the ability to light this cigar with a single match.
The first third lends a Cameroon type sweetness. There is a slight bitter-spiciness mixed with leather and woody undertones. I get cedar on the retrohale. This is definitely a medium bodied cigar.
Into the second third the sweet, woody, spicy flavor profile continues. There was no change during this third.
The final third switches to primarily cedar nuances with the sweet undertones still present. I let it go out half way through this third as the cedar starts to ramp up and become harsh.
Overall, this is a perfect example of a Cameroon cigar in a small package. This scores a 9 out of 10.
